The Village Voice: Nation: Nat Hentoff: A Judge's Life: The Final Reckoning by Nat Hentoff:
William Moody, an African-American drug defendant, was arrested in 2000, seven years after his indictment. Authorities could not find him because he was living in New York, holding a steady job and supporting his family. Upon learning about Moody's apparent turnaround, [District Judge] Pickering delayed his sentencing a year, allowing his continued good behavior to be used as a basis for punishment with no prison time. —Bill Rankin, staff writer, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, March 9, 2003.
